Sulfosalt melts and heavy metal (As-Sb-Bi-Sn-Pb-Tl) fractionation during volcanic gas expansion: the El Indio (Chile) paleo-fumarole

Henley, Richard; Mavrogenes, John; Tanner, Dominique


High-sulfidation vein gold deposits such as El Indio, Chile, formed in fracture arrays <1000m beneath paleo-solfatara in volcanic terranes. Stable isotope data have confirmed a predominance of magmatic vapor during the deposition of arsenic-rich sulfide-sulfosalt assemblages in this deposit. These provide a unique opportunity to analyze the processes and products of high-temperature volcanic gas expansion in fractures that form the otherwise inaccessible infrastructure deep inside equivalent...[Show more]
